Almost everyone have heard the hit single 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' by
Bobby McFerrin. The song has a very catchy way of conveying its message
of being happy to everyone. Bobby Mcferiin's simple message surely made a
lot of people by telling them not to worry.

Living a happy, resilient and optimistic life is wonderful, and is also
good for your health. Being happy actually protects you from the stresses
of life. Stress is linked to top causes of death such as heart disease,
cancer and stroke.

One of the better things ever said is - 'The only thing in life that will
always remain the same is change', and in our life we have the power to
make the necessary changes if we want to. Even if we find ourselves in an
unbearable situation we can always find solace in the knowledge that it
too would change.

Social networks or relationships are essential to happiness. People are
different, accept people for who or what they are, avoid clashes,
constant arguments, and let go of all kinds of resentments. If arguments
seem unavoidable still try and make an effort to understand the situation
and you might just get along with well with

Happiness is actually found in everyone, increasing it is a way to make a
life more wonderful and also more healthy.

To be happy is relatively easy, just decide to be a happy person. Abraham
Lincoln observed that most people for most of the time can choose how
happy or stressed, how relaxed or troubled, how bright or dull their
outlook to be. The choice is simple really, choose to be happy.

There are several ways by which you can do this.

Being grateful is a great attitude. We have so much to be thankful for.
Thank the taxi driver for bringing you home safely, thank the cook for a
wonderful dinner and thank the guy who cleans your windows. Also thank
the mailman for bringing you your mails, thank the policeman for making
your place safe and thank God for being alive.

News is   stressful. Get less of it. Some people just can't start their day
without   their daily dose of news. Try and think about it, 99% of the news
we hear   or read is bad news. Starting the day with bad news does not seem
to be a   sensible thing to do.

A religious connection is also recommended. Being part of a religious
group with its singing, sacraments, chanting, prayers and meditations
foster inner peace.

Manage your time. Time is invaluable and too important to waste. Time
management can be viewed as a list of rules that involves scheduling,
setting goals, planning, creating lists of things to do and prioritizing.
These are the core basics of time management that should be understood to
develop an efficient personal time management skill. These basic skills
can be fine tuned further to include the finer points of each ski ll that
can give you that extra reserve to make the results you desire.

Laugh and laugh heartily everyday. Heard a good joke? Tell your friends
or family about it. As they also say -'Laughter is the best medicine'.

Express your feelings, affections, friendship and passion to people
around you. They will most likely reciprocate your actions. Try not to
keep pent up anger of frustrations, this is bad for your health. Instead
find ways of expressing them in a way that will not cause more injury or
hurt to anyone.

Working hard brings tremendous personal satisfaction. It gives a feeling
of being competent in finishing our tasks. Accomplishments are necessary
for all of us, they give us a sense of value. Work on things that you
feel worthy of your time.

Learning is a joyful exercise. Try and learn something new everyday.
Learning also makes us expand and broaden our horizons. And could also
give us more opportunities in the future.

Run, jog, walk and do other things that your body was made f or. Feel

Avoid exposure to negative elements like loud noises, toxins and
hazardous places.

These are the few simple things you can do everyday to be happy.

And always remember the quote from Abraham Lincoln, he says that, "Most
people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
